Abstract

This book reflects an important shift in conservation focus away from maintaining the physical fabric of material culture towards the impact that caring for material culture has on people’s lives. It aims to place this understanding within a broader framework of decolonisation and its impact on the colonised and the colonisers. The book challenges the role of conservation as a mechanism that commodifies the material culture of others, and this has a major impact on the tenets of Western conservation thought and practice. The transformation of Hinemihi between artefact and toanga provides a potential emblem for both Maori and British cultural identity undergoing the process of colonisation and decolonisation.
